The Gaby's in the Orange Circle is cramped, LOUD & over priced. People hang out at the short & unaccommodating bar, in the way of the employees TRYING to serve other diners: management does nothing to control the standing room only individuals who also stand too close to the back 3 "table for two" seating which is right across from the bar! VERY RUDE. & trying to get to the bathrooms- you have to fight your way thru the kitchen pick up shelf & the waiters station.... terrible.

We love Gabbi’s. The food and ambiance are wonderful. This visit the food was wonderful, but for the first time, our server was not up to par. He was not as friendly as all the other folks and forgot it was my husband’s birthday (we called to remind and placed notes on reservation)......

Was billed as Easter brunch, so we were a little disappointed at lack of “brunch options,” but food was good. Service was pretty slow considering that when we arrived, only 2 other tables had people. Find it odd that their soft drinks come in little bottles so refills are not an option. We did get plenty of water, though.

Always spectacular flavors. Luckily I could try something new tonight as my date ordered something diff from my usual shrimp enchiladas. It was pork pibil, and we tried the al pastor gorditas! Those must be laced w/heaven and lard, simply to die for. Every bite was great mouthfeel and layers upon layers of flavor. She is brilliant, one day I’d like to meet or see her. Excited for her new one in Tustin w Yucatán flavors. Omg like Cancun. She should do another casual seafood one, Baja style down and dirty in LB or Cerritos. I tell everyone about this place

Wish they made side table guacamole. That way you can add as much heat as you want.

The food at Gabbi’s is amazing. Our favorite item is the quesillo verde appetizer. The green salsa is fresh and spicy. The Puebla tacos are rich with bacon, sausage, and steak. The homemade flour and corn tortillas are the BEST. Service can be hit or miss. Our server was friendly and attentive.

Excellent restaurant with no name on the front. This is not your typical Mexican fare but the choices are very interesting and delicious! The duck carnitas tacos were tasty as were the pork carnitas. Churros are made to order. Service is very attentive. The ambiance is lively. A little pricey but well worth it.

Came here with family for a lunch and were promptly seated (had reservations). Ordered the shrimp tacos - got two huge tacos stuffed with spicy shrimp and veggies with a side of black beans that were a bit soupy. Hubby loved his pork tacos stuffed with spiced meat - both tacos could either be corn or flour tortillas which are handmade! Cousin enjoyed her gorditas- three small gorditas stuffed with BBQ pork that was so messy she needed three napkins, but she loved every bite!

I should start by saying i need to come to Gabbi's more often. The food is just too amazing. This time I got the chicken enchiladas and I loved it. Good complex flavors with a little heat. The only drawback is that its kinda pricey for everyday eating.

The locale and food are terrific. Definitely recommended! Drawbacks are the price of drinks and lack of bar / waiting space before seated at your table. Initial service was excellent, but I had to flag the waiter twice for water refills. Overall very very good, but somewhat overpriced.

My husband and I come here regularly and were disappointed that the server we had complained about getting a 25% tip. My husband is also a server at a high-end restaurant, so he was baffled as to why this person would complain about not receiving more, when we tipped above average. We probably won't be coming back anytime soon because this was really annoying to go through especially while we celebrated a birthday.

We were in town for business but wanted a good local restaurant. Gabbi’s kitchen did not disappoint. It was fantastic!! We had tacos with sides of Brussels and yuca fries. I only would have skipped the guacamole if I went back-
Highly recommend.

No sign/marquee which was actually kinda cool to me. We had our table moved once which disrupted the meal flow a bit but the food was good so it wasn’t a big deal. I would go back.
